to remember is -- and texas adel i use the cut a billion dollars in and they put 1 dollar even though one put in a billion times more than the other, they have the same right. that, to me seems awfully fair. you take a system on the other hand where half the people don't even pay any income taxes but they get to have a say at how much they have paid that is fair. give me a break. we need to start thinking about things that work for everybody. and in the process of doing that, i think we will not have any limitation on the number of jobs that are created. and in the opportunities that are provided. for someone that grew up in the very lowest rungs of society and socioeconomic status it's because we have a system that allowed that. they still do ought what is getting more difficult. i want to make sure it remains easy for people who are willing to work hard and do the right things to be successful in our society. >> host: what is the political reaction to the speech? >> guest: there were a lot of people who were shocked. and to me that is alarming that in america we are the land of freedom we w
